Summary:

Kobi Simmons is an athletic, tall combo guard that possesses an intriguing set of offensive skills.  He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, as he excels at attacking the hoop to garner scores, and he can do so off the dribble, as well as in transition.​

Plus, he also can knock down threes, and he is a solid facilitator that can ably run the point as well as play off the ball.  Simmons had a very good first game to help lead his team to a win over Michigan State, but he also tended to be inconsistent in games, as his play tapered off late in the season.

​Right now, he could project to be a second round pick this year.  Simmons may be overshadowed by higher profile teammates, but his skill set could potentially allow him to thrive in the NBA.​
